i am really scared of rats, mice, sharks and snakes.  not much chance of seeing a shark around here thank goodness and i haven't seen a snake either so that's really good.  i think i'd die if i did.  rats on the other hand do invade my space.  i was sitting on the couch once, just minding my own business, when a large rat ran along the fence.  i nearly died.  omg.  anyhoo, i was getting over the shock and horror of that when a few hours later it ran back in the other direction.  yuck.  yesterday i put some bread crusts on the lawn for the birds.  when i went to bed i looked out of the front door and i saw a small rat eating the crusts.  it saw me and ran off and set off the lights.  omg.  the crust is completely gone this morning.  i must have been a bit rattled because i came down this morning and the tv was still on.  oh dear.  they are plentiful in bali and i usually spot one or two.  years ago they were everywhere and one year i didn't see one. 


  1. Not a nice creature when cornered are rats.

  2. I'm not scared of them, but I'd rather not see any in my home. Thankfully, I haven't seen any in the 7+ years I've been here. I do get garden creepy crawlies though, cockroaches, earwigs, slaters and millipedes. They're seasonal apart from the cockroaches and I've put out baits for those now.

  3. They are creepy. Can you set a trap or put out some ransack trays.


thanks for visiting. :)
